The Denver Post is calling it the ” great internet land rush” as numerous business looks for to develop their brand with over 1200 “personalized” domain extensions presenting in the next 2 years.
Custom .coffee Domain Extension
. coffee will be readily available for registration on April 9, 2014– and pre-orders for name brands have actually currently begun.
ICANN, the entity responsible for providing domain registrations, grants hallmark holders a special 60 day hang on the .coffee extension and the 1200 other custom-made domains for their hallmark. Business without hallmarks will need to act quick and pay huge to protect their brand– or run the risk of needing to pay even larger rates to waste, domain-buying cybersquatters.
After the sixty day hold for hallmark holders, it’s open season for all good manners of cybersquatting.
GoDaddy charges trademark holders $199.99 to “protect” their domain.
